Top Keno prize won

LANSING, September 14, 2007 – An anonymous Saginaw man is “overly excited” about his $250,001 Keno win!

The regular Lottery player gave his easy pick ticket to his aunt prior to cashing it in at Lottery Central in Lansing.  He plans to move south with his prize money.

The lucky winning ticket was purchased at Guerra Grocery LLC, 1408 N. 10th St., in Saginaw.

The Keno game is designed to appeal to players wanting better odds of winning a prize.  To play Keno, a player selects 10 numbers between one and 80.  The Lottery draws 22 numbers from the field of one to 80.  Players win if they match six, seven, eight, nine or all 10 of the numbers on their ticket to the 22 drawn by the Lottery, or even if they match no numbers at all.  A player matching 10 numbers wins $250,000; nine numbers wins $2,500; eight wins $250; seven wins $25; six wins $7 and matching zero numbers wins a free $1 instant game ticket.  Keno drawings are held seven days a week.

All proceeds from the Lottery are contributed to the state School Aid Fund which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan.  In fiscal year 2006, the contribution was $688 million.
